>> reporter: well, first of all, the traffic situation all lanes of interstate 80 just re- opened within the last hour. so that is the good news for commuters out here in this area. now, what we had this morning was a chain reaction situation. an early morning crash involving an ambulance shut down several lanes of traffic here in the eastbound lanes of interstate 80 at the cummings skyway. then two other crashes happened as the traffic was slowing in this area because of the lane closures. the most serious of those crashes involved this big rig, which slammed into the back of a mazda sedan and the driver that have mazda was left dead at the scene. we understand he was a man. there is no other information on the victim in that case. it's unclear exactly why the driver of that big rig was unable to stop. but at the time the chp says that traffic was slowing in this area because there were still lanes closed from that earlier accident up ahead on the freeway. and the chp says when lanes are
7:02 am
closed, drivers need to pay close attention. >> in a situation like this, we ask all drivers just to pay attention to the road. slow down. make sure you are focused on what's in front of you compared to what's on the side of you. once you are distracted, something like this can happen. >> reporter: and a series of accidents started with that serious crash around 1:30 this morning when an ambulance slammed into the back of a cement truck that was stopped on the freeway where roadwork was going on. the chp says the two emts in the front of that ambulance were rushed to the hospital. both with serious injuries. and according to the chp those emts injured had come from ucf children's hospital in san francisco. they were the only ones inside the ambulance. they were not transporting a patient at the time. then there was a third accident in this area as well. that involved three cars, but everyone involved in that crash had only minor injuries. but again the most serious
7:03 am
crash involved a big rig that slammed into the back of a mazda sedan leaving the driver of that car dead at the scene. it happened here in this area you are looking at in the eastbound lanes of the freeway. you can see a couple patrol cars at the scene. but all lanes of traffic are now back open following three separate crashes in this area early this morning. >> all right. alex, thank you very much for that information. >> we have slow traffic in other parts of that commute now. it seems like all the slow traffic that was there has just moved down the road after being delayed somewhat. let's take a look at 80 down the road at the toll plaza. you will see the traffic is backed up for a 25 to 30-minute delay. it seems as if it has filled in the last half hour or so. even a little bit more than 25, maybe almost 30-minute delay before you make it onto the bridge. we are lack looking at 880 northbound. this is good. when you get to hayward you will see slow traffic to the union city and fremont area.

that is backed up -- oh, the spider. boris the spider is out there. our toll plaza is backed up for a 25-minute delay. boris is around. he has been camera shy lately, or maybe perhaps just business eye. we talked about 80. earlier problems. look at the road sensors here. a lot of slow traffic through hercules and richmond. we are behind schedule. let me do this again. this is what i wanted to do. there you go. you see? that's slow traffic right there. and now look at the san mateo bridge. that is just another commute that's very, very slow heading out to the high-rise. so it's normal, but doesn't mean it's good. let's go to steve with today's forecast. >> thank you, sal. cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. all sorts of reports of drizzle or light rain especially from no the north bay santa rosa add beautiful glen ellen and sonoma. cloudy to mostly cloudy. it will be cooler today.
7:46 am
heavy drizzle. didn't he just put out a new hip-hop album? heavy drizzle? love his work. his last one was spectacular. and downtown slow- noma this morning. william the turtle loves it [ applause ] >> clouds, cooler. i entertain myself. cloudy rain, weekend breezy cool. i know. i am doing my best, but it looks breezy and cool on saturday. partly to mostly cloudy for the giants day baseball today. 64. i would take a jacket. there is a lot of cloud cover streaming in and the drizzle is too low little. reports in occidental. so far not in bennett valley and santa rosa. doesn't mean it's not happening now. petaluma, cotati, rohnert park and sonoma. that's the heaviest drizzle. there hasn'ten that much.
7:47 am
even in larkspur. marin county a little bit as well. system will continue to spread in a lot of cloud cover. 50s, 60s. balmy held up by the cloud cover. a south-southeast breeze. it's going to be a cloudy to mostly cloudy day. the system show in advance of that is right back here. that's going to swing in tonight/tomorrow. it looks like a decent system here. rainfall has been -- monday i showed this. it hasn't backed off when we were 80 and 90 degrees. it continues quarter inch to a third. then north bay half-inch to over three-quarter of an inch. i think tomorrow will be steady rain in the morning. 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. turning cloudy. breezy. cooler. patchy clouds. if we don't get some sun breaks some of these mid 70s may not see the light of day. temperatures will continue to cool off over the next 12 hours. tomorrow loud with rain. it will be gone by saturday
7:48 am
morning. a breezy, blustery weekend. staying in the 60s. >> what a change. >> thank you. >> time 7:47. well, spring is still in full swing. summer's around the corner, which means your kids may be gearing up for a big sports season. >> all sports come with a risk of injury. back in the studio with important things parents know to keep their children healthy and safe. >> very important. we know about the risks in contact sports. we have talked about concussions. but pediatricians say most injuries in young athletes are caused by overuse. now, doctors say most common sports injuries are sprains, which are injuries to ligaments. strains, which are injuries to muscles. stress fractures, which are injuries to the bones. they are caused when an abnormal stress is placed on tendons, joints, and muscle. in a growing child even minor swelling should be looked and evaluated further by a medical professional. they also say many injuries
7:49 am
happen because kids race from school to practice or games without warm-up or the right gear. >> a lot of them are really, really common sense things about strengthening muscles, about stretching before and after practices, about wearing the appropriate types of gear. a lot of times your kids, if you ever had a child play, they buck you on this, but that's something that has to be done. >> some things you can do as a parent, make sure your child has gear that fits properly. hand me downs aren't always the best decision. check to see they drink plenty of liquids before, during, after play and insist on conditioning and stretching exercises and at least one day off per week from their sport to allow the body to rest. the american academy of pediatrics also reminds parents don't forget about the emotional stress. young athletes feel judged often about winning or losing rather than the effort, sportsmanship and hard work.
7:50 am
we know those coaches and parents who are all about winning and not necessarily about the hard work and sportsmanship and all that. >> when you talk about injuries, we think of the contact sports, football, soccer, et cetera, et cetera. but any sort of an theater can suffer a devastate -- athlete can suffer an injury. >> i talk about my daughter as a high school cheerleader. they are lifting and throwing and catching. you know, fellow cheerleaders. they spend a significant amount of time before and after practice stretching and conditioning and running before they do cheerleading. things that people don't think about. and that racing from school on to the playing field is not always the best decision. >> good to know. pam, thank you. time is 7:50. a police officer in utah found himself delivering his own baby on the side of the road in the back of the police car. talking about officer travis clark and his wife. they were rush to go a hospital in salt lake city when they realized they weren't going to

7:56 am
game. you know, they are going to come out, play a good game. so are we. it's going to be a lot of details, a lot of battles. >> game five is tomorrow night at staples center in l.a. if the sharks win the series is over. if the kings win, the series comes back to san jose for game six on sunday. >> a new report suggests more than 80% of californians are at risk for poor air quality the report by the american lung association found most of the air pollution is caused by emissions from transportation sources. bakersfield is the city with the worst particle pollution. pollutants in the air can lead to severe health effects including asthma, lung, and heart problems. >> these little tiny droplets can be so tiny you can't see them, and they actually -- you breathe them in and they flow through your lungs and not only create problems in your lungs, but also flow into the bloodstream and affect the heart and other organs.

>> this is ktvu "mornings on 2". >> 8:00 this thursday morning, april 21. thanks for joining us on "mornings on 2". a quick look at weather and
8:00 am
traffic. weather has this a big change through the week. >> thank you, gasia. [ inaudible ]. >> you know what we could do. let's check in on the morning commute because it has also been a bear. yesterday 880 was a mess. today 80 had the problems. sal castaneda, help us out. >> it is pretty slow out there, gasia. yeah, we have had a couple of bad days. yesterday on 880. today on 80. fortunately, things have settled down a little bit out there. let's see what we have. the traffic is still going to be slow -- actually, it's recovered here in this area. but we had an earlier crash on eastbound interstate 80 right near the cummings skyway. a deadly crash where a big rig rear-ended a car. that person in the car was killed. there were also a couple of other crashes that were a little bit more minor, but all seemed to be related to some roadwork that was going on here eastbound 80 in the cummings skyway. this is a picture of the very
8:01 am
first crash that happened when a medical -- an ambulance rear ended a cement truck. those people were injured. in total, there were three accidents at this scene beginning at about 1:30. they finally cleared at about 7:00 this morning. and the traffic is finally rolling well. again, unfortunately, one person as a result of these crashes, one person was killed. chp continues its investigation, even though all the lanes are clear. this is 80 westbound as you head out to the macarthur maze. there are no major problems, but it is going to be slow. it's backed up. this is a locations highway 4 westbound as you come up over the willow pass bridge. still a little bit of late commute coming up and over the hill. i told you about it, but i wanted to put ap arrow to drive it home. 80 is slow through richmond and hercules. if that's your commute, you have a lot of waiting do before you make it to the berkeley area. let's get today's weather
8:02 am
with steve. >> there time. good morning, everybody. the drizzle picking up a little bit from marin county over to daly city and plenty of reports up in the north bay. i know novato, rohnert party, petaluma, cotati, and glen ellen reporting drizzle. larkspur reporting in with drizzle. a .01 since 6:30 this morning. slick roads here. i believe we have had a lot of reports of that around the cotati grade. clouds, cool, drizzle. tomorrow rain though for everybody. looks okay. .25 to 1 inch farther up you go. breezy, cool on the weekend. cloudy day for the diamondbacks and giants. wife take a jacket. i wouldn't be surprised if there is mist or drizzle in there as well. a lot of cloud cover. in that mix you can get some drizzle. just radar is not picking it up right now. cloud cover on the move. our system's on the way as well. 50s and 60s -- hayward 62.
8:03 am
oakland 62. sfo 61. santa fe and mountain view 60. a south-southeast breeze coming in. this system will slide in and give us rain. breezy, cooler for some on the highs. lows are up. 60s and 70s. rain will make it tonight into tomorrow. back to dave and gasia now. new this morning out of oakland one person was killed in a warehouse fire. oakland firefighters posted this picture to twitter. the fire started 3:15 this morning at 66th avenue and coliseum way near the coliseum. firefighters say they saw heavy flames when any got there. at this point they haven't released of information about the person who died. >> a tragic situation in san jose. police there investigating a deadly stabbing in which they say a son killed his father. ktvu's janine de la vega live in san jose after talking to people who live nearby. >> reporter: gasia, they tell me that the victim was very ill
8:04 am
and the son was his caretaker. they say that the son was a very good man, that this completely came out of the blue. so they are very shocked. this all happened last night at around nine at the mill pond mobile home park off of kirtner. officers arrived and found a 68- year-old man with stab wounds in a back bedroom. he died at the scene. according to police the son told the mother what he had done and went outside to smoke. some of his neighbors heard that commotion. >> i heard my neighbors sort of yelling at each other. she was what have you done to your father? and then shortly thereafter she went out in the street and she was crying. >> reporter: police say the son surrendered peacefully when they took him into custody. investigators say he is 43 years old and may have been
8:05 am
under the influence of drugs and alcohol. mental illness may have been a factor. these are things detectives are looking into. just a very sad situation that's really hitting this neighborhood hard. it's a senior community and a lot of people here know each other. reporting live from san jose, janine de la vega, ktvu fox 2 news. >> thank you. >> time is 8:05. from the civil rights movement to the 1960s to addressing police brutality today. reverand jesse jackson continues to be a major voice in america for minorities in particular. that has brought him to the bay area today. he is continuing the push for diversity in silicon valley and more. joining me now, he needs no introduction, the reverand jesse jackson. >> working on it. >> i can do it if i have to. thank you so much for being here this morning. >> good to be here talking about the valley because we're talking about hope and opportunity. the gifts of the children of oakland in the bay is
8:06 am
unacceptable. there is no need to be trying to bring youth in from out of the country into here. these youth can be trained and taught. and trying to get them to put the churches to teach our children codes, stormtracker markets gains to give them that science and having to push tech conference here at the marriott tomorrow. at hp tonight. what's exciting, the city's children begin to come alive and know that they have the possibility of becoming, you know, the next google, the next apple, as it were. >> just to plant the seed. you're talking about athletes. there is a hire and invest in oakland. sports tech 20. faith tech you talked about. >> they are coming to oakland. half how plus jobs. and doing so they need to hire from here as priority. need to invest here as a
8:07 am
priority. green line. the red line zones and make oakland continue to come alive. and of course the nation. i mean, these ghettos are facing a combination of guns and drugs and jobs out. it's not working well for us. plan to lock up our youth rather than lift them up is not working for us. there is no brain shortage. there is no capacity shortage. we must overcome that gap. >> i want to talk about a lot of different things. you're applying pressure to silicon valley, but also politics while i have you here. the presidential candidate. the fight to get the nominations in both parties, what are your thoughts on it right now? >> it's ugly this year. the idea of a mass deportation of americans to go back across the border to re-settle again is the worse than the japanese
8:08 am
internment damps of the 1940s. it's a bad idea. and the idea of not trueing -- mexico is our first line of defense. suppose isis and mexico and canada, we could not survive it. we need mexico. they are the key to latin america. and so two-thirds of our hemisphere speaks spanish. so to offend our neighbors, our necessary neighbors, is bad politics and bad judgment. >> i have to ask a follow-up question. we have seen in the primaries so far that african-american, latinos and other minorities have been a major force in the voting, in the primary so far. what does that tell you? >> it suggests that the 1965 was a game changer. not only african-americans who got the right to vote after 85 years, but white women couldn't
8:09 am
serve on juries. es is picturation -- 18-year- olds could not vote or serve in vietnam. you could not vote on college campuses. you could not vote proportionally. we made that happen. it's not so much that we are post-racial. this new generation of opportunity is hanging the course of our country slowly but surely. latinos can be, a woman can be, the possibilities have been removed. there should be no impossibilities. on the one hand, the president can be president and trump can be in the running. there is nothing we can do. >> i have to ask you something that happened this morning a little while ago, speaking of the presidential candidate. donald trump was on television this morning talking about the government, the treasury department selecting harriet tubman to be the new face on the 20-dollar bill. he said i don't like it. i'd rather see her on a 2- dollar bill. >> well, that's the reaction. i don't agree with his
8:10 am
position. harriet tubman is a liberator versus andrew jackson a slave master. she represents a kinder moral -- she represents the best of america. overcoming our number one sin. that sin of slavery. she represents something very wholesome for america and andrew jackson recommendation something ugly. i disagree with trump on that. >> you have done so much in your life and career. what is auto life for you now and do you missing being out on the campaign trial? >> i do not. we never left. we're free and equal. the equality struggle, in the silicone valley, we came here a couple years ago. i mean, just these horrible numbers for the valley in terms of our capacity and now hp has four blackboard members. it had none. apple has jim vail from boeing
8:11 am
on their board now. they had none. microsoft has jim johnson. so we see it opening up. it's much like jackie robinson story. we open up the doors and see america through a door, not a keyhole. what they don't see is money, market, talent, location, and growth. and so we are trying to take that blinder off. remember how great you are. you can't be a one-eyed quarterback. >> and you are speaking as a former quarterback. >> yeah. you were good. i got to tell you, you're making a difference. you're going to be at montera millennials in oakland. you will be -- >> don't self-distract. do your best. you can beat odds. we are odds breakers and dream makers. we must believe that. i remember i was in sixth grade
8:12 am
and one day mrs. shelton came in the classroom. she was speaking from your diagram. all this. and so -- and she was writing big words on the board. big, bywords. she said these are polysyllabic terms. i will never teach down to you. run or governor or president one day. i don't want to be embarrassed. she ran on my ticket as state representative. we must not teach down to our children. they have infinite possibility. lift them up and be up. >> all right. i wish you much success with what you are doing the tech conference conference and the "veep" tonight in hewlett- packard. >> this is a dynamic mayor here. brash lee and willie brown, they are champions for me. of course, i got steph curry on the brain. >> yes, you do. i wish you well.
8:13 am
reverand jesse jackson. thank you for being here on "mornings on 2". >> now back to gasia. >> thank you both. >> the massive clean-up at hippie hill begins this morning. how much trash is left behind and why the parks department calls this scene depressing? also next what's happening on the campaign trail today and where donald trump plans to set up shop here in california. we are still seeing a commute that is going to be busy out there and this morning 80 is taking a beating, but also some of the other commutes surrounding this contra costa commute are going to be slow. the e-class has driver-assist systems. it recognizes pedestrians and alerts you. warns you about incoming cross-traffic. cameras and radar detect dangers you don't. and it can even stop by itself. so in this crash test, one thing's missing: a crash.

the macarthur maze. it's just a volume thing. a lot of people are on this road. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza, it is backed up all the way out to the macarthur maze. no major problems getting onto the bridge. but you will be waiting 25 minutes to do that before you get into the city. we also want to mention marin. marin is quietly having a bad morning. stop-and-go traffic from highway 37 all the way down to central san rafael. then more slow traffic through green bray. so even the people in beautiful marin, they have bad commutes, too. 8:33. thousands of pounds of trash is being picked up in san francisco's golden gate park. >> it's the aftermath of the an actual 4/20 smoke-out at hippie hill. brian flores is there with the impact this is having on the city. >> reporter: when i spoke with the general manager of san francisco rec and park earlier this morning he says he understands the event's popularity, but his concern is about the parks.
8:34 am
speaking of the parks, we talked about several rec and parks employees picking up thousands of pounds of trash left behind. when we spoke with the general manager, he says really the amount of trash is depressing. after all, today is earth day. about 40 rec and park workers are picking up trash from the 4/20 smoke-out yesterday. they estimate about that 17,000 pounds of trash will be picked up just from this event alone. and it cost the department thousands of dollars in overtime. not to mention resources that would normally be out. they have to be diverted just to this spot to clean up. the one that disturbs rec and park is the amount of coal found on the grass. they say it damages the grass if left behind. >> the folks that are out here were from someplace else. there are other areas around the city that are not getting attended to this morning so we can clean this up. the second thing worth note something that this probably has an overall cost to our

department of around $50,000, maybe 100,000 or so for the entire city. we can put a kid in summer camp for 300 bucks a week. that's a lot of kids. that's a lot of summer camp that we are spending right out here picking up other people's trash. >> reporter: the people here had a great time. an estimated 10,000 people were here. the event was more than just lighting up. plenty of food. edibles like hash caramels. people from all over the world and from different generations were here, too. >> it's awesome. i mean, people that are my age and older and even younger and the younger ones are just all good. it's a good thing. >> this isn't drugs to me. this is not a drug. this is a medication. this is something that should be allowed just like alcohol. >> reporter: we should also mention there are a few incident from last night. about six somebody thought they heard gunshots and some describe it as a small stampede
8:36 am
of people after they heard it. police did not find a gun. there were about six arrests made. bun for a robbery. one a traffic warrant. one was for resisting arrest. the hill was completely filled with trash. the quick work of these sf rec and park workers completely changed the landscape of this area hippie hill. they are having to deal with some light rain as it is beginning to fall this morning. some people we spoke w they understand the brevity of the event. they would like to see this event sanctioned in the near future. back to you. >> thank you. >> and the celebration took on added meaning because of the burning to make recreational marijuana legal in california. supporters are collecting signatures to place an initiative on the ballot that would legalize use for adults

8:41 am
about playing tonight. >> reporter: steph curry told reporters if game three happened yesterday, he probably wouldn't have played. he didn't feel like he had recovered enough. he said yesterday that that all could change by tonight. we'll see whether he plays in game three. it will be a game time decision as you mentioned. still up in the air right now. curry practiced yesterday after the team landed in texas. he did the drills, went through his post practice shooting routine. he said his heart is geared towards playing and he wants to be out there with his teammates. he was conflicted about striking that balance about getting back that action and playing it safe for hi -- his long-term health. >> not doing further damage or hurting myself even more. balancing that with, you know, the time, you know, it's a great time to keep doing what we're doing and taking advantage of this playoff run. so just got to be splatter. >> the opponent is no factor. no. it doesn't matter who we're
8:42 am
playing. honestly, it doesn't even matter the series score. like, i mean it's nice to be up 2-0 and say, all right, you know, we'll give him rest or whatever. but it really isn't about that. it's about whether he is okay or not. >> reporter: now, fans are optimistic the team can beat houston tonight with their mvp because the warriors have already won their last two games against the rockets. one of them also without curry. tip-off at 6:30 tonight. game four is on sunday also in houston. back to you guys. >> all right. allie rasmus, thank you. >> let's go to sal castaneda. we have breaking news. what's happening in san francisco? >> a two-alarm fire at 17th and guererro. looking at it now, this was reported about a half hour to 40 minutes ago. first the smoke was black. now it looks like it's white. but more units are arriving. they have upgraded this to a second alarm fire. those units have not arrived on the scene. they are on their way. you are going to hear sirens
